Bryngwyn Hall a garden for all seasons from February with early drifts of snowdrops and daffodils, later Azaleas, Rhododendrons, Magnolias and Camellias. Mown paths guide you around the garden to the yew enclosed Rose Garden and Colour themed Herbaceous Borders at their best in the summer months to the superb collection of Acers, Betula, Prunus and a large variety of unusual trees and shrubs giving a stunning display of autumn colour.
Many interesting mature trees and shrubs remain from the 19c including rhododendrons brought from Bhutan, Sikkim and Northern India. Left to dereliction for 60 years Lady Linlithgow embarked on an exciting and extensive restoration programme in 1991. The nine acre gardens of Bryngwyn wrap around the house and melt seamlessly into the surrounding oak studded parkland and large lakes designed in the early 19c in the manner of William Emes.
Our poison garden unique in Wales, contains over 115 poisonous plants including ricin, opium poppies, aconitum, datura and hemlock. The garden is laid out with five paths representing earth, fire, water, air and spirit. It is fascinating, beautiful and intrigues our visitors.
